Designed to withstand
the unpredictability of demanding outdoor working environments, rugged mobile solutions
are ideal for the waste management industry. Yet, rugged mobile systems have
benefits for waste management that extend far beyond simple suitability; the
right hardware can help to optimise operational performance and efficiency, cut
costs and provide invaluable business insight.

Dirt, dust, knocks and
drops from height, not to mention exposure to the elements – waste management

your teams is easy thanks to secure 3G or 4G connectivity. Instantly send
through live progress and route updates to ensure unexpected hitches don’t slow
things down, and receive status reports, schedule change requests, hi-res
imagery and data capture as it happens. Your business achieves optimum
productivity levels where it matters most, keeping mileage, vehicle maintenance
and personnel costs down.
Daily working reports
